    "My daughter attends TBES, and she/we couldn't be happier. The teachers are committed to the students' progress, keenly observe them throughout the school year if there's any problems and constantly communicate with us, the parents. I might also add that the entire school's spirit is a reflection of Joe Erpelding, whom loves and is committed to the children and is just a great person overall to be around!"

    "Tierra Bonita has some innovative ways of teaching. Technology is the focus at this school with 1:1 iPads for all students 3-5. Because technology is the principal's focus, other very important foundational skills are left behind. Reading is not a focus at this school!!! There is a need for quality reading material (real books) at this school. Some teachers are very good but others need to be do the minimum to get by. Technology is good but overshadows everything else."

    "The focus at Tierra Bonita is on 21st century learning with a large emphasis placed on personal responsibility and leadership skills. Our staff has worked hard to create engaging and meaningful lessons that will empower students and produce problem solvers who will be college or career ready when they finish high school. I love being a part of the learning at our school!"
